    First we need to find the total shirts and pants he pack

    To do that the ratio of shirts he pack is

    [3/(3+6)] x=9 shirts

    X represents total of shirts and pants

    Solve for x

    3/9 x=9

    Divide both sides by 3/9 to get

    X=9÷(3/9)

    X=(9×9)÷3

    X=81÷3

    X= 27 shirts and pants

    Since the total of shirts and pants is 27 then the number of pants he packed is

    27 – 9 shirts=18 pants ….Answer

    Hope it helps!
